Before I go on about illusion, I’d like to say I love my job!! We have just started choreography on a new grand illusion show for our annual event Magique Halloween Circus, and a show of which we will also offer for entertainment for private hire for Weddings, Corporate events etc.
This is mostly why I love this business, working with illusion, hypnotists and the mystery… even when I know how it all works, its definitely intriguing and simply fun! So Sydney Magicians, a small yet distinct community there are a few working independently as you “google” and I guess what my efforts are at Magique is to create a collective of what I determine as the unique skilled ones from the bunch.
This is not to say the other performers, Magiciansout there are less credible but some rather work independently and some dont match the criteria for Magique. So you already, from looking at our site have a good feel what we are about, here is a video of our Latest addition to the team:
I guess whats a stand out with Cosentino, even before he reached out to a broader audience on Australias Got talent.. is not necessarily his magic, but his presentation. Most Magiciansare working with similar starting points, effects but tend to take what i call “the old school” approach to performance. Following the effect or trick step by step as per the creator some 10+years ago in my opinion is the first fail.
Cosentino is awesome, not just because of his great illusion skill, but his style and presentation. which in most cases could be called the icing on the cake. Cosentino now has a public show In melbourne and plans to further tour next year. You can, if you have a corporate event or function hire Cosentino for you event. How you ask>? click here.
Now I wont go through and introduce you to all the Magicians and performers under the Magique banner but I guess just want to take the time to explain our philosophy and what we are all about. For me it’s all about customer service. When, some time ago I was searching for a fire juggler for a function I was holding i emailed 6 people i found through google.. and several days later i got 1 (and only 1 ) reply.
This industry is much like the magic, with hobbyists promoting themselves but not taking a proper professional approach to understanding what the customer – your needs are. I guess I like the fact that me ( James Patrick, in case your wondering) can take a subjective approach to understanding which sydney magician would suit the event – or enquiry from you the client.
Here is another Video the break up the text. who-ha!
Im not going to say anything more about Magician Neo, im sure the video does the trick. I guess my advice to you would be. Looking for a Magician can be tough so, if your unsure- meet him. We are always happy to come out for a chat and provide an obligation free quote.
By meeting the Magician face to face you can straight away judge wether he is the right fit for your event. Feel free to drop us a line and arrange a time if you want to have a quick chat about what Sydney Magicians we offer and how it all works.
It was a series of mixed emotions from Happiness to disappointment and all that falls in between. This season of Australians got Talent was one of the best, with the ratings to prove it. In my opinion, mostly due to the new variety of actual Talented acts ranging from the young winner – 14 year old Jack Vigen up to the Senior performers from Benchmark.
As much as I like Jack, I wanted something different from the cliche Singer or Dancer to take the crown. This view is expressed by many but as the show comes down to “votes” not enough people must share my opinion. Many have claimed “its rigged” and that Jack was groomed as a winner from the start.
The validity of this we will never be known but I do know that the production of Singers/Dancers from Talent search shows in my opinion will soon see their demise. I was Very very happy that Australian Magician Cosentino Made is through to finals, and also surprised he pushed all the way through to 2nd place. My jubilation mostly rised from the exposure and what this can possibly do for the Magic community.
What do I mean about the magic community??.. well mainstream audiences experiencing illusion, with a good showman like Cosentino helps open peoples eyes to what we offer, and drives more work for all Professional Magicians within Australia. Why do I think this??.. well imagine a world without David Copperfeild, without Harry Houdini or Lance Burton… the illusion business would definitely be a different one.
I think Cosentino will go on to become a popular magician, and mostly because he can connect well with the young audience. He looks trendy, is polite and doesn’t look like the 70s cliche magician with a top hat stereo type that many performers to this day still personify .
If you would like to book Cosentino for your show, or find out more about him or any of our Magicians feel free to contact us today.
